MARIE Curie is urging fundraisers to sign up to the charity’s first-ever Whitby trek.

The 10.5-mile trek will take place along the stunning coastline of North Yorkshire on Saturday, September 5, from 8am to 6pm, and is now open for registration.

The registration fee is £30 and there is a minimum £200 sponsorship target.

The trek covers the picturesque coastline, starting in Ravenscar, then passing through Robin Hood’s Bay and finishing with the 199 steps of Whitby Abbey.

Emma Williams, community fundraiser for Marie Curie, said: “New Year’s resolutions often fall by the wayside before January is over, but Marie Curie’s new trek will help you stick to and achieve your aims for 2020.

“Whether you want to improve your fitness, have fun, get outdoors or meet like-minded people, the trek promises to offer all of that against a backdrop of stunning scenery.

“So why not take up a challenge, fulfil your ambitions and help raise vital valuable funds for Marie Curie Nurses, who provide free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.”
